With Tory’s collection of makeup, bath and body products and fragrance now available at Nordstrom, we wanted to connect with the busy entrepreneur and style maven for a few quick questions:

You probably won’t find many feasts where thanks are being given for beauty products, but we think they deserve a little love today too. We polled a portion of our beauty team to find out what they’re most beholden to among their cosmetics crop:

 

I’m thankful for my CLARISONIC® Skincare Brush because I’ve been using it for almost ten years, and am convinced that’s how many years it has taken off my face! It’s probably the reason I’ve been carded twice in the last six months. —Kate Fannin, Beauty Trend Editor

 

 

I’m thankful for my Clé de Peau Concealer, because it’s the perfect travel companion for easy touch-ups on the go. With just one product, it’s bon voyage to dark circles, spots and unwanted imperfections! —Debra Redmond, National Beauty Director

 

 

I’m thankful for my diptyque ‘Do Son’ Eau de Toilette, because this scent takes me back to my honeymoon in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. It’s such a beautiful white floral fragrance, so clean and fresh. —Natalie Kraft, Beauty Marketing Manager

 

 

I’m thankful for my Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Mascara, because I’m an incurable night-owl, and this eye-opening, luscious-lash-making miracle is my key to look less Walking Dead at work. —Stefanie Frank, Beauty Features Writer

 

 

I’m thankful for my SK-II Facial Treatment Masks, because I love instant gratification, and when I use one of these in the morning, my skin glows all day. —Autumne West, Assistant Skincare Buyer

Our beauty trend editor, Kate Fannin, gives her recommendations for the best men’s grooming products that bridge the gender gap and are perfect for women.

“Hey, that’s mine!”
“Um…you have a beard now. You haven’t shaved with a razor in months.”
“Yeah, but still…it’s…guy stuff. And mine.”

So went a recent conversation between my husband and me about one of my new favorite products that I may have borrowed (okay, stolen) from him. It seems that my muscle-car-loving, motorcycle-riding, cowboy-boot-wearing husband also appreciates good “skin stuff.”

There have been so many masculine influences on women’s fashion and style recently—moto details, rich textures (hello, ‘For the Twill of It’ essie nail polish) and the return of the power suit (with shorts, no less). I thought it only appropriate to tell you about some men’s grooming products that you’ll want to spill over (no pun intended) onto your side of the bathroom counter.

HERO

Pre-Shave Oil by The Art of Shaving. It not only comes in a very cool glass bottle, but it has stellar viscosity like the perfect motor oil (I know a little bit about cars myself), which is perfect for shaving legs. Plus it’s available in lavender, zippy lemon or good ol’ unscented.

Jack Black Epic Moisture MP10 Nourishing Oil. Guys don’t like having six different products if they can get everything in one. This is such a product. It’s great for dry hands, face and lips—even staticky hair benefits from a touch of this. And, believe it or not, it’s really moisturizing without being greasy—it sinks in after less than 30 seconds. I keep it at my desk, and my keyboard isn’t slippery at all.

Kiehl’s Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap. It’s big, blocky and exfoliating (aka “gritty” in man-speak), and absolutely the best exfoliator to use before applying a self-tanner. It also makes the perfect gift for dads, brothers-in-law and any guy who believes soap can only come in a solid form.

Bolin Webb R1-S Razor. Ditch your disposable, ladies, and step into something sleek, elegant and available in hot-rod red. This razor is your new best friend and has a design philosophy like that of the best sports car: “spirit, curve, balance, energy and movement.” Cue the checkered flag.

YSL L’Homme Intense. I’m typically a girly-girl when it comes to scents (I love a good fruity-floral), but something about wearing just a hint of this scent makes me feel a tad…cooler yet still chic. I feel like I could continue the motor oil conversation and move right into horsepower chitchat—all while wearing my favorite 5-inch YSL heels.

So, next time you “borrow” his favorite worn-in T-shirt, you may also want to consider poking around in his medicine cabinet too. You just might discover your new favorite “skin stuff”!
